MANHATTAN, Kan. (KAKE) -

K-State backup quarterback John Holcombe announced on Twitter on Tuesday that he is leaving the team, and will put his name in the transfer portal. 

"I wish my brothers nothing but the best for the rest of this season and will be happily cheering them on, but it is my time to part ways," wrote Holcombe.

Out of high school he was ranked the 13th best dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2018. Holcombe redshirted last season and was used mostly in running situations this year.
